on myself, two years ago...

"There are times, lately, where I feel like all I need is a hug from my mom to be okay. I hate not having that option. And yes, I'm an adult and I'm married, but I still need that comfort sometimes. That is something I will never outgrow."

  2. I don't think we ever grow out of wanting comfort from our mothers.

  6. I don't think it's something you should outgrow, parents never stop being parents. Get as many mum hugs as you can.

    My mum died when i was 21, and the one thing i feel glad about is that we always hugged, and said we loved each other.

    Hugs can convey more than you can ever say,and there is something safe in having a mum hug and smelling mum smell.

  7. oh, yes... a hug from our mom-- there is nothing like it. And now that I live so far from my mom and so rarely get to see her I realize that more than ever.

  8. Wow. I feel the same. There's just something about your mom that makes it all feel better.

  10. I can totally relate...often times when things are amiss, I will think to myself "I want my mommy!"

  11. I hope you remember that when your a mother. Because I don't think my mom does. And sometimes thats just what you need, but you can't ask.
